Telangana Congress leader Revanth Reddy detained

Telangana Congress Working President Revanth Reddy was detained by the state police on Tuesday, ahead of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao's election rally in Vikarabad district. He was taken into preventive custody early on Tuesday, to prevent any untoward incident during Rao's rally in Kosgi, Kodangal. Reddy was later shifted to an undisclosed location.

Reddy, who quit the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) to join the Congress earlier this year, represented Kodangal in the dissolved Assembly.
